A Butterfly with Five P's

                   Welcome

For some time I have intended to play over at MrsA's Butterfly Challenge, and this week I have made my card and have it photographed and ready to go!!    


I was inspired by a set of stamps that came with a magazine some time ago, that I have finally inked up, with my markers, and used.
 

I painted the images using the same markers, by wiping some ink onto an acrylic block and picking it up with a wet paintbrush, giving a no-line look.  I loved the result with this pink lily.


The humming bird was painted with blue and green and I then added some purple - the two tail feathers I mixed the blue and green to give some variation of colour


I added this part of the sentiment to the bottom right, and highlighted it with pearls


And added the peach coloured die cut butterfly with a matching pearl over some patterned paper that was a snippet I from a piece of marbled paper, and outlined the edge of the card with a fine purple doodle.


This is the inside, finished with the birthday greeting and another snippet of the marbled paper

The challenge was to use this wheel as our inspiration


I managed everything but the paper piecing.

Hi Maxine. That Lily is beautiful. It really caught my eye. I see your card is for the Butterfly Challenge. I used to enter this quite regularly but my crafting is always a bit slow just before Christmas and into the new year. As it happens I am working on a card for this challenge now and hope to have it finished today It is not a bit like yours, and I just love the variety we get when we are all working on the same theme.
I like the whole water-colour effect on yours, and the little humming bird is very pretty. Kate x

I'm in awe that you met all but one thing on the challenge wheel! You rock! Love those stamps as well, especially that hummer. Hugs, Brenda
